Welcome to my website,

‘Originally I came to live on the Islands in 1965 and stayed awhile, then after several years away returned in 1987 where I’ve lived since.

My work is both figurative and abstract in nature as you can see in the following pages.
The landscapes and seascapes were originally worked out on the spot but now are created in the privacy of my garden and studio from sketches and memory.’

‘Over Ganilly Shallows to Nornour,’ framed canvas overall size 79+58cms £2,600
Peter MacDonald Smith Artist Isles of Scilly

‘You can find my gallery on St. Mary’s at Studio 3, Porthloo which is just a 15 minutes walk along the beach track from Hugh Town.’

The Studio

Located at Porthloo on the Island of St Mary's, the Studio is a pleasant 15 minute walk out of Hugh Town along the scenic costal path leading up to the golf course.


A warm welcome is assured with Peter in attendance most days. With a comprehensive selection of his work, these are original landscape, seascape and abstract images worked mostly in oil on panel or canvas. There is a large and varied selection of reproduction prints and cards from which to choose and purchase either directly at the Studio or via mail order.

The Studio opening times are 12 midday - 5pm (although with inclement weather, when painting can be difficult the Studio may be open all day 10am - 5pm.)
